Is a crackdown on the paparazzi necessary in Hollywood? STAR Artist John Mayer believes so. He was one of three celebrities who participated in a City Hall meeting in Los Angeles yesterday. Mayer told officials that he's often followed late at night by cars without license plates that sometimes don't stop at red lights. He said, "Without knowing who is following you, you do not know why you are being followed, which brings about a very real possibility of suffering harm." John went so far as to propose that paparazzi be credentialed and display a, "big white P" on their license plates.

Transformers director Michael Bay went to bat for Shia LaBeouf.
